46-year-old Craig Crawford was charged with criminal simulation when he attempted to open two Regions Bank accounts using false identification, per report.

On June 23rd, Craig Crawford reportedly entered a Regions Bank located on 1624 21st Ave S to open a business and personal bank accounts with a false Florida driver’s license. According to the affidavit, the photo on the license was of Crawford but had another individual’s information listed.

The bank accepted Crawford’s false identification and created a personal account for the man. While Crawford’s business account was being opened, law enforcement was contacted to verify the identification. Crawford was still at the scene of the incident upon officers’ arrival and was in possession of the license.

Crawford would later complete a waiver of his Miranda rights, confessing that the information listed on the license belonged to an unidentified party. A search in the Florida driver’s license database revealed no record for the number provided. Crawford was then placed into custody for criminal simulation.

Craig Crawford was arrested and charged with criminal simulation. He was later freed on pre-trial release.
